Early start for me today, woke up at half 4 to leave the house at 5 to make the 250 mile trip down to tuning developments. When I arrived Mike greeted me with a friendly handshake and a quick conversation to get some background info on the car. After signing a form he gave me and my 2 mates a lift into town as what can only be described as the ultimate sleeper (we were pretty impressed with it). Had some breakfast did some shopping then had a brew and within 3-4 hours I had a call to say the emanage had been fitted and mapped and that the car was ready. Mike then came back and picked us all up which is really good of him, you don't get service like that at many places. Got back had a look at the graphs and it had made 221.8BHP at 1bar on 95 ron fuel so I was very happy and paid him the very reasonable price that he is offering just now (which I would recommend anyone to take him up on) and got my graphs & keys. Overall I was very happy, mike is a top guy to deal with really nice genuine guy, feels just like it's your mate your going to see even put up with the state of my very dirty car and all the rough edges that still need tidied up haha.

Anyway down to the performance. Before it went it was running 0.5 bar on a RRFPR and FCD and setup on a wideband and at the time I felt it was pretty quick and a decent upgrade over the CT9 even at 0.5 bar. The car pulled ok although it was fairly hesitant at low RPM and had a couple of small flat spots and also a slight blip on idle. After mapping all this was gone car runs like new and feels amazing to drive, it is far far smoother and pulls like mad in every gear even 5th I can't believe the difference it has made, so much faster and torquier. The power delivery is perfect and boost comes in really nice, none of the old harsh spikes that used to break traction. It gets to full boost boost after 4k rpm and hold it perfectly all the way to the redline. It really just feels like a new car to drive I had a grin from ear to ear driving it home, can't thank Mike and Nick enough and I would whole heartedly recommend anyone to take there car there, I know mine will definitely be back.

Great service, thanks.

this is exactly how my car acts, and im running 0.5 bar ct9 ext wastegate, going mapping 1st march for td04 @1 bar so looking forward to driving it home now lol


mikes super friendly awesome guy, any parts are shipped and received super fast, look forward to mapping :)

Thought I'd best leave some feedback for my recent visit to Tuning Developments last month. Around a 4 hour drive from where I stay so I booked into the premier inn just along the road

I arrived bright and early to have my e-manage blue fitted and mapped. I was greeted by Mike, who I had spoken to several times before my trip. Gem of a bloke who couldn't have been more helpful

After the dyno session I was presented with my printout with an impressive 224bhp @ 1bar from my CT12 turbo & and the car now drives superb! Pulls very strong in every gear even with the boost controller set to low

Thanks very much guys! Look forward to dealing with you again very soon

I've made two trips in total now to tuning developments once on the 4th April 2015 and one yesterday 4th July 2015. Both times I was greeted kindly by Mike, we spoke most of both days chatting cars and I was made to feel at home.

All my questions I had were answered honestly, without hesitation. It felt like I had known Mike for years! The guys have done a truly awesome job on my car, I couldn't have asked for better service! 300.9bhp was the end result!

Thanks again Mike and nick! :)

And here's one for Mike! Lmao!!

Brilliant service from the Jones brothers from me, they seriously know their way around a starlet!
Had a mapping session, emanage blue install & GFB G Force 2 boost controller installed, they managed to squeeze out an impressive 193.2bhp with a stand 0.6 bar actuator spring (boost was tailing off) on my hybrid CT9!
I'm beyond impressed with the service from these guys and will defiantly be returning when I decide to forge and get hold of a billet TD04! Cheers!

Ordered a cv joint myself along with HT leads. Came next day which was unreal! Joint kit was spot on, even came with new hub nut, crown and split pin. Key chain and air freshener was a nice touch. Glad I got a red one this time, blue one before didn't match my colour code
Thanks guys!

Excellent service from Mike and Nick. Always helpful over the phone or email with however many questions I fired their way. Spent hours just chatting on the occasions I was there too!

Really happy with the work they carried out on my car. Car runs superbly now.

Nice to come across a tuner who actually gives a damn about what they do too! Genuinely nice guys. Will always be going there for future work.

Cheers guys!
Marc.

Just wanted to say a big up and thanks to Mike.
Used TD for the first time over weekend ordering a couple of bits from website. Got a call from Mike the next working day to discuss bits I'd ordered and stock levels and he sorted me out so i could get the bits the next day. True to word they arrived on Tuesday. Top bloke and very helpful, will definitely be using again.
Thanks Mike

Huge thank you to Mike and Nick at tuning developments, the car was running like a bag of nails after having an emanage blue, GFB boost controller, 460cc injectors fitted and then a remap, it was running spot on, loved every minute of the drive home! 265bhp in the end!

Can't reccomend these guys enough!

Thanks TD
